New benchmark grants the power to unleash the DirectX 11 potential in the gift wrapping of impressively towering graphics capabilities. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. With the interactive mode emerging experience of exploring the intricate world is ensured within reach. Through its advanced renderer, Unigine is one of the first to set precedence in showcasing the art assets with tessellation, bringing compelling visual finesse, utilizing the technology to the full extend and exhibiting the possibilities of enriching 3D gaming.

 

Note: If a card doesn't support DirectX 11 the benchmark will be left out, if it does it will be included along with the DirectX 10 results.

Under the DX10 test we see the power of CrossFireX really shine. Firing up DX11, however, paints a different picture. Multiple reboots and retests came out with similar numbers. We hope that it's not a CrossFire / DX 11 issue; we'll find out later when we test our real world DX 11 game, BattleForge.
